thank you waited the dishonorable title of traitor. of course it's hard to hear that we have family neighbors would think about our house but in other words we run away whiskey because we're scared of radiation but there's no example in the world of something similar and the consequences are still ongoing. while those who have moved to shelters here in tokyo are facing that guilt and the pressure to move back home there are others who have lost everything cannot handle the overwhelming change and they are facing even darker demons japan already has one of the highest suicide rates in the world and following the disaster in march the government has issued a warning about a possible nationwide epidemic of depression. here. commented . is everything they saw in full after many hours of hard work on just. one night.
so some. farmers committed suicide i'm very sad to hear the news and many other farmers are also very much depressed a recent national survey in japan performed by dr hiroshi and his team shows that suicide rates in japan have been found increased in the months since the disaster compared to the same timeframe in the previous two years but the demographics are not what you might expect. this is a rate increase. not. you know thirty eight centers but if you're areas because. striving to you costs right they have not had to make suicide this disaster has certainly taken its toll on japan's economy and such constant reminders of an intense topic can harm the collective psyche of the people who live here as well because of the. tsunami
disaster plus nuclear disaster many people lost their jobs or their working conditions has crushed. so. yeah they have a so many good reasons to commit suicide causing japan's death toll to keep rising even though the initial disaster has subsided months before in japan sean thomas or t.v. . watching live from moscow syria get serious about political freedom we ask whether a democratic gesture by president asif government will help an ongoing violence or helping hold on to power. president barack. obama has turned to the public for help in pushing through a deal on its debt he wants americans to put pressure on congress to find a compromise and a televised national address you warned that failing to raise the debt ceiling will cause incalculable economic damage obama blamed republicans in the house of representatives or the lack of a deal to avoid a u.s.
national default congress has just a week to raise the fourteen point three trillion dollars debt limit before it runs out of money risking a downgrade of its credit that would mean higher interest rates republicans and democrats have been locked in a dispute over whether spending cuts or tax hikes is the end sir to the debt crisis matthew adams senior editor at the capital research center says the government needs to raise its borrowing limit to keep investors. obama and the democrats in congress just want to keep on spending. and so they would like to see the debt ceiling raised so that they can continue to give rewards to their supporters among the labor unions and the various political organizations that are sympathetic to the democratic party's cause the u.s. is able to keep raising its debt ceiling because people investors around the world have confidence in the united states they believe that the u.s.
government will honor its outstanding obligations and so as long as people have faith in the investors have faith in the u.s. government in its credit worthiness then the u.s. could keep raising its debt ceiling the problem right now is that the debt is so high that that in itself is starting to become a negative factor that could lead to a credit rating downgrade of the united states government if china loses confidence in. america the american government's ability to pay its debts then the u.s. will have nowhere to run to the u.s. with the only the only choice it would have would be to keep printing money to inflate the currency run the printing presses and risk devastating hyperinflation so that's about the only or the u.s. government would have to drastically cut spending and implement pretty severe
austerity measures matthew senior editor at the capitol research center from washington d.c. . well we are closely following developments on the american financial scene on our web site so you can go to our ti dot com for the latest updates and videos as a whole when they are the countdown days until the fall to wall street high flyers are bracing themselves for iraq's new bride. this life is a joke going to. that's going to sweep really is going to be good. while others in the u.s. are choosing to ignore the problem by dressing up as superheroes santa tanning the annual comic con convention.
a senior north korean diplomat has been invited to new york in an attempt to revive long stalled talks over his country's controversial nuclear program the moves come just days after a top and ways from the south and north korea said together for the first time in over two years on the sidelines of the already summit in indonesia there are they agreed to renew the six party talks over pyongyang's atomic ambitions and we're going to ask for north korea shelled island killing four people saying it was responding to that of military drills however the u.s. secretary of state says before any deal was discussed north korea must first dismantle its nuclear facilities as the rock and co-founder of the national campaign to and the korean war says america should stand in the way of a peaceful solution. we forget that you know if you can reach agreements even with people you have profound differences with the word exercises where we say
simulate landing two hundred thousand troops and taking over beyond yanks and defending against other types of attacks only serves to amp it up and certainly the comments and expressions from the north don't help either so you have both sides who need to step back and certainly begin to look at peaceful exercises of their relationship their north korea has not india has always indicated that for a peace treaty and formalized relations with the united states that it would give up its nuclear weapon capability that has always been on the table and we should be grabbing that as a real opportunity because more than one hundred fifty countries have normalized relations with the north and we need formal channels to begin to deal with these things like jimmy carter and former ambassadors have been saying and our campaign along with many others are beginning to help washington move from demonization to
engagement which is really necessary for any systematic change. on the way here in our team why have one when you can't have mattie what a growing number of women desperate tither not some are willing to accept being wife number two or even three. norway's prime minister says his country will remain an open society memorial processions for the victims of friday's twin terrorist attack have been held throughout the nation over a hundred thousand gather in the capital to mark the deaths of seventy six people flowers and candles were used to commemorate those massacred in the shooting at an island hughes camp and the bombing of government buildings in oslo man who admit at the atrocities has been charged with terrorism at a closed court hearing and will be held in isolation for four weeks as varying brevik pleaded not guilty saying he wanted to save society from an immigrant's invasion david johnson at a c.m. partners in chicago believes that if you are economic troubles increased so too
will the popularity of extreme right wing parties. i think the financial crisis is going to make it much more difficult to combat the message of these far right groups in times of economic stress it is distressingly easy for people to look for scapegoats and unfortunately it's human nature to seek out scapegoats that look different than us who have different customs that i am concerned but it is a real trend sadly while economic hardship has not caused this i think it is likely to exacerbate what we're seeing and i think that looking at just the scandinavian countries it is actually eye opening far right groups are going to gain increasing credence and popularity in the next few years throughout europe which is worryingly close to almost a century approach and we really need to hope that our leaders throughout europe will do more to put these type of caustic ideologies back on the fringes where they

a german thinks it's time for the alliance to admit the failure of its afghan campaign. i think that it will just convince more people in afghanistan that the war isn't helping them but it is actually killing and injuring more and more people so isn't working isn't going to work when you have a war where the risk of growing insurgency will bring me all sorts of people who are victims of this and children are obviously one of the worst of the casualties the only solution to this is to sell you a war isn't working as there is absolutely no justification for the nato forces to be there and that they should withdraw the troops this is now coming up to the tenth anniversary of the war and there is absolutely no question that this war is not getting better it is getting worse it is almost certain that whatever settlement eventually comes in afghanistan it will involve the taliban in some
capacity nearly everybody now recognizes this so what is the point of continuing this war the point of continuing this war is because the americans and the british and their allies cannot admit defeat in the second country after what happened in iraq that is why they're there they are there in order to prop up a government that they have no real confidence in they are there in order to save their own faces they are there to protect their interests they're not there to protect the ordinary afghans and we've seen this again this week alison is a german from the stop the war coalition. syria's government has adopted a draft law allowing rival political parties to be created it could and decades of domination by president assad's ruling baath party opposition groups have been banned since the military coup nine hundred sixty three the law is part of reforms promised by president assad to put a man to more than four months of protest against his government over fifteen hundred civilians have been killed and thousands more detained since uprisings
began in march however political theorist benjamin barber believes the law is nothing more than an empty gesture. it is not anything but formal and technical change the reality is this government cannot afford to have a genuine multi-party. approach because the parties that will be empowered powers that. rule and the end of bashar assad other words if they do more than just a formality it will lead to the fall of. this is anything more than a. stall for a while. to multi party democracy and i do believe that in the end. i would suggest that the united states and the western powers are hypocritical they talk about change but of course they haven't really put any
pressure. on syria the kind that they have put on libya for example the. casualties i don't see anyone really moving to look for the fact is. evil and i think they're very worried about what the unknown alternative might look like so i suspect that while they will continue to posture in public and pretend. the regime they will do little to actually remove assad he knows that and therefore he will make some nice noises about multi-party democracy and accommodation but in reality he will hang tough and i believe that very little will change. now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world nato airstrikes caused a fire at a food storage complex and time in a northern city torn between colonel gadhafi forces and the nato support of the
